We were after a quiet meal after a long day traveling to capetown. We ordered lamb and fish off the grill menu any veg etc had to be ordered as sides. These sides were enormous and most went to waste. Each side is enough for 2-3 people

I had the pleasure of dining at OYO this week and was very impressed with their new menu. I can highly recommend the tempura prawn starter, the beef fillet and the creme brulee. The service was excellent and the staff were friendly. For a cuisine extravaganza visit oyo in the VA Waterfront

Never have I had the opportunity to sit at a table, with close friends and watch as their emotions ran from curiosity, to gladness, to amazement through to happiness and finally being satisfied and contempt all throughout the meal we had at Oyo Restaurant. A menu such as this one we experienced should be the new standard for all menus... More

After an amazing culinary experience at Oyo's sister restaurant, Dash, last year, I didn't hesitate to take an out of town friend to Oyo to take advantage of the winter special menu. Unfortunately, the special stated on the V&A Waterfront website did not correspond with the restaurant's own offering. Nonetheless, we thoroughly enjoyed the food (kingklip and butternut gnocchi dishes)... More
